Crime Fiction and the Olympics: A Quiz

Reviews

This is my 100th post since I started blogging in September last year and to celebrate I’ve compiled a quiz. Thanks to Margot at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist, who has provided the crime fiction community with some killer quizzes in the past, for giving me the idea.

After much build-up and anticipation, the 2012 Olympics are well under way in London. After a dire start to the British summer we are also seeing some sunshine for the first time. The photo below was taken when I was in London before either the Olympics or the fine weather had arrived.

Sport isn’t a particularly well-mined subject for crime fiction. I sometimes wonder if this is because writers simply don’t like sports, or whether us readers feel the same way. But there are some exceptions and I have managed to find books that feature either the Olympics or sport in their plots.

Click on the link of tower bridge below to start the quiz and good luck. I hope it’s as much fun to complete as it was to compile.
